    uh...so I'm still dealing with that "Communism, Fascism, and Democracy" book. My friend's dad lent me a book on the incredible scientific exploits of the old hairy British Isle dudes who made Stonehenge, and The Last Don is by my bed right now.

    howzaboutyou?

    its not very good, its about an ecoterrorist as an old man after global warming has kicked in and everything failed.

    thanks for contributing, guys. fr8lover, I'm feeling the war memoirs, too. Mostly, I like the Great War and World War II stuff. So complex, those wars were; on such a great scale.

    Anybody ever read the National Geographic issues on Alexander the Great? Some good tactical stuff on the battles between Alexander and Darius of Persia.
